Topic: Online Resources for Research in Adolescent Literacy

10-second review: Five Websites dealing with adolescent literacy.

Title: “Research Connections: Websites on Adolescent Literacy Research.” DW Moore. Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy (October 2008), 166-168. A publication of the International Reading Association (IRA).

Ad Lit.
Alliance for Excellent Education.
Carnegie Corporation’s Advancing Literacy Initiative.
Center on Instruction.
International Reading Association: Focus on Adolescent Literacy. Between “focus” and “adolescent” is a low dash.

Comment: The author reminds his readers that although these Websites contain valuable resources, they are not all encompassing. Don’t forget books and periodicals devoted to adolescent literacy. RayS.
